balloons-891793_1280Did I make my goal of hitting #1 on Amazon?  Well, I’m not sure yet. Rank usually hits the lowest point (best rank) around 6:00 – 7:00 a.m. EST. Right now I’m sitting at a beautiful #48. Yes, I made it into the Top 100 Best Seller List! I have the following ranks to be proud of as well.

#01 Paranormal Romance > Psychic
#02 Paranormal Romance > Witches and Wizards
#02 Paranormal Romance > Devils and Demons
#02 Paranormal Romance > Vampires
#02 Paranormal Romance > Werewolves and Shifters
#02 Science Fiction/ Fantasy > Paranormal and Urban

There is what I like to call “The Evil Box Set” of 20 books on sale for only 99 cents that is conspiring to keep me out of the #01 slot of all of those categories.

I am definitely a winner because I had such wonderful outpouring of support. It was awe-inspiring to see so many friends and complete strangers saying, “I’ll do everything I can!” And all of this on short notice!

(See my final update in the comments section.)

Now I want to do something for you.

I’ll be posting a few blogs in the next week to cover some of the most commonly asked questions.

  • What is the Daily Deal selection process?
  • What did you do to prepare?
  • Lessons learned? (This is my own ask!)

Check in on my blog in a week or so to get answers to these questions.

If you do use Facebook and you supported me during the event, please go here on Friday/early Saturday. The “Help Me Get to Amazon #1” event will be transformed into a networking event where supporters will share information that will be helpful to each other. I’ll have posts where you can drop your information and others can pick it up.

The rest of this post is aimed specifically at people who don’t use Facebook but who supported me during this endeavor. It is my way of reaching out to non-Facebook users.

I’d like to collect the following information from you.
You can send it to my email at lilo.j.abernathy@gmail.com. But I must receive it sometime on Friday/early Saturday for it to be useful. Saturday/Sunday will be an information sharing days.
